Just to give you a reference re. time.

As I post this at 5:44 pm (17:44) U.S. Eastern Time it is 10:44 pm (22:44) GMT. 5 hour difference.

Sri Lanka time, and given that the island is only 110 miles wide at its widest, there is only one time zone is GMT+5:30.

That 30 minutes is crucial. An inspired touch by the British that I am ALWAYS grateful for. Thank YOU. Those 30 minutes ensure that sunrise, most days is pretty close to 6 am. Anybody who has been to Hawaii will appreciate what I am getting at.

So as I write this it is 4:18 am (04:18) in the morning of Tuesday, January 13, 2015.

Pope will land in Colombo, actually about 3o miles north of Colombo, in about 4:30 hours.
